Course Length: 16 hours total - delivered across 2 sessions of 8-hours each.


This course is designed to educate students in the contemporary concepts, challenges, and technological advances in the field of Electronic Warfare (EW). The course occurs over two days, and builds on foundational EW concepts by introducing advanced information in Electronic Support (ES), Electronic Attack (EA), and Electronic Protection (EP) specific the challenges being faced currently, and through the 2020s.

Major topics of discussion will include advanced EA techniques, cognitive EW, data fusion in EW, space-based EW, Cyber Electromagnetic Activity (CEMA), navigation warfare, and directed energy weapons. Each topic will include lectures, with expanded upon through demonstrations, and, for the more ambitious, independent student exercises.

Who Should Attend

The intended audience of this course are Electronic Warfare (EW) professionals looking to expand their knowledge of the field. Prior experience in EW is recommended.
